Suspected Drunk Driver Hits 3 Cars In Beaver Falls

BEAVER FALLS (KDKA) — DUI charges are pending against a woman after a bizarre crash in Beaver County.

The woman crashed into three cars belonging to the same family on 9th Avenue in Beaver Falls around 2 a.m. Friday.

Nathan Goughnour took pictures of the damage from accident that wiped out transportation for his entire family.

“At this point in time, I look at everything and I’m just absolutely stunned,” he said.

The woman failed a field sobriety test.

Goughnour said there’s a bigger lesson here.

“Look out for your friends,” he said. “If you’ve had some drinks, do yourself a favor, select someone to drive for you.”

Beaver Falls Police have not released the name of the woman.

    So why is she suspected if she failed the test?

      Until it goes to a hearing, it’s speculation.

    I would like to know how Jennifer Ruttinger got off her charges of DUI when her daughter died 1-month ago…Washington county DA did not file charges within thirty days, now they never can…How did that Happen?

    1. karen p says:

  3. Kevin Weissenstein says:

    “Nathan Goughnour took pictures of the damage from accident ”

    From _the_ accident. Come on KDKA, at least pretend to know how to write an article.

    Why did the reporter say that the family will be out $500? If they file the claim against the drunk driver, then they do not pay any deductible. If they file the claim against their own policy then they will have to pay the deductible up-front but after all the paper work is finalized they will be refunded the deductible after their insurance reclaims that from the drunk driver’s insurance. Still a pain to deal with but in the end they shouldn’t be out any money.

    It just does not pay to drink and drive lol.

  7. Drinkydrink says:

    How many drunk off duty cops have hit pedestrians on the way home from south side in the last 2 years…….

    Field sobriety tests are NOT mandatory

    You DO NOT have to speak to the police

    REFUSE any search requests

    WHY give them evidence?

    The police ARE NOT your friends, they are out to F you in the A…..
